MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - William Jordan never returned home after leaving to help a friend at 2 a.m., fifteen years ago.
“I never heard from him again,” said Monica Jordan who is William’s mom. “Not until the next morning I got the knock on the door from the state trooper."
William died after a drunk driver crash that morning.
“He was a really good guy and he just decided to go out and help a friend one night,” she said. “He had three children, a brand new baby at the time he was killed.”
A SafeWise study said Alabama has the fifth highest rate of impaired driving deaths. Alabama had a rate of 5.5 deaths per 100,000 people.
